Welcome to icon_nomination! This is a bi-weekly icon nominating community (hence the name) where you can nominate your favorite anime, manga, and video game icons to compete in various categories. In essence, this is a condensed version of ljamia and will be a good place to find awesome icons later on. This community was founded by silverqe and nyaabo after the former noticed there were no nominating communities that encompassed all three media.
There are a total of 12 categories you may nominate icons for, with an additional Best Overall category that is decided during voting. Here are the descriptions for each...
Best Anime Icon: This is the category for the most l33t icon of anime artwork or screencaps.
Nominations are held on a bi-weekly schedule. Nominations open when results of the last Round are posted (the Special Category will also be announced at this time) and close (obviously) when voting goes up.
1. Hotlinking is allowed in the community for nominating purposes. The icons will be uploaded to a different server during voting, however.
Please use this template to post nominations:
Voting for nominated icons will open every two weeks on Friday @ 10PM Central Standard Time and close on the following Sunday @ 8PM CST. Results will be posted shortly after voting has closed. Vote in accordance to the outline provided on the voting post.
There won't be any prizes for the winners of each Round
